Accommodation Summary

Entrance Lobby, Reception Hall, Lounge, Dining Room, Garden Room, Snug/Bedroom, Dining Kitchen, Utility Room, Home Office/Bedroom, Cloakroom, Three Principal Double Bedrooms (Master with Dressing Area an En-Suite Bathroom) and Family Bathroom. Detached Garage. Extensive Private Parking. Landscaped Gardens With Timber Studio/bar/office

Accommodation

The entrance lobby is a very useful space with ample room for coat hanging, boot storage etc; it also has windows to the front and rear which ensure a good flow of natural light through to the adjoining reception hall. Ensuring a lovely warm welcome and extending off to all accommodation, the reception hall has great built in storage as well as very useful cloakroom with WC and wash hand basin. To the rear of the bungalow is the impressive lounge which the current vendors rarely use; its immaculate presentation and tasteful styling really sets the tone for the rest of the accommodation. With an array of windows to three sides, the light in this room is fantastic, something that is further enhanced by the muted colour scheme and quality hard wood flooring (continued throughout much of the living space). The room commands superb outlooks and has a lovely focal point created by the feature fireplace housing an electric fire. The neighbouring dining room is the perfect space for entertaining and plenty big enough to accommodate a sizeable table and chairs. From here there is access to the super garden room; commanding a slightly elevated aspect over the private grounds with full length glazing to two sides plus windows and French doors on the far side providing a great connection to the gardens. For those seeking a sociable dining kitchen and a great family space, The Croft offers just that; fitted with a range of tasteful and top quality units with ample worktop space and panelled splashbacks. The kitchen design incorporates a large island – ideal for every day/family dining and as with the other public rooms, commands a view over the gardens. The adjoining utility room is a must have space for a home in the country – ample room for additional kitchen appliances, muddy boots or even dogs.

There are up to five bedrooms in total although the current vendor uses only three; the snug with views to the rear and the home office with an outlook over the entrance would both be ideal bedrooms for those that need the extra space. From the main hall, a secondary hall with windows to the front extends to the three principal bedrooms. All are sizeable double rooms with outlooks over the rear section of garden. Bedrooms two and three both benefit from built in wardrobes whilst the master bedroom boasts a dressing area with extensive built in storage plus a very well appointed partially tiled en-suite bathroom. The main family bathroom is equally well fitted; again with partially tiled walls and benefitting from a bath as well as a separate shower cubicle.

External

The expertly manicured outside areas offer a haven for any gardening enthusiast or an enviable environment for young family to enjoy. With extensive areas of lawn, the gardens also incorporate thoughtfully planted beds and borders which create interest all year round, an orchard area with great selection of productive fruit trees as well as vegetable garden with raised beds. The low level fenced surround provides security but also ensures that the property makes the very most of the outlooks over the adjoining farmland. The strategically placed seating areas have been created to enjoy the sun as it moves throughout the day culminating in some super sunsets to the west.

Studio

An impressive detached timber studio sits towards the foot of the garden; currently utilised as a bar and entertaining space, it also offers obvious potential as a dedicated home office for those that wish to keep work and home life separate. Benefitting from power and broad band.

Garage & Parking

The private gated driveway extends to the side and rear of the property providing ample parking for several vehicles and additional space to house a caravan/motorhome if required. The detached single garage has light and power, up and over vehicular door and side pedestrian door to the gardens. A further area of parking is located to the front of the bungalow
